This year, the Westminster Dog Show will draw lots of attention. But no dog will surpass the legacy of the first Best in Show winner - a smooth fox terrier named Warren Remedy. In this episode of Vox Almanac, Vox's Phil Edwards explains how it happened.
Warren Remedy won three Best in Show titles at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, and she cemented her place in canine history. But her legacy extends beyond her title - as an exemplar of the smooth fox terrier breed, she helped establish the “type” that people expected.
That was largely because of her breeder, a wealthy Manhattan socialite named Winthrop Rutherfurd. Rutherfurd famously dated a Vanderbilt before settling down with a vice president’s daughter, but in addition to lighting up the gossip pages, he bred fox terriers at his estate in Allamuchy, New Jersey. And he promoted them through the American Fox Terrier Club and Westminster Kennel Club. These efforts helped the relatively new breed gain a foothold in American culture.
Warren Remedy may never be surpassed in her three Best in Show titles. So was she the greatest dog of all time? That might be the wrong question. She was the greatest dog of her time, though, and that may have established an even more important legacy, for all dogs and for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.
Further Reading:
This archival article from Outing Magazine has a surprising interesting history of smooth terriers in America, including how the breed can be traced to just a few dogs.

The Dog Show: 125 Years of Westminster is a great resource for dog show obsessives, and it chronicles all the winners as well as the early history and lore of the show.

The American Kennel Club lists all their dog standards on their website. The listing for the wire fox terrier is a good place to start.

No information about dog breeding should be given without a disclaimer: “Dog breeding is borderline animal abuse that we do not support”. Genetic bottlenecking, the process of refining a breed, leads to disease and death. Inbreeding is a common method. He mentioned bulldogs; their lifespans average six years, they can’t give birth outside of cesarian section, and their tails can be ingrown. Don’t support breeders with your patronage, support rescue shelters.

The greatest dog of all time: our dog Max, because he grew up with cats. And throughout his puppyhood, he thought he was a cat. And when he discovered he was a dog, he became the most feared dog in our neighborhood. With an attitude of a cat, and a fierceness of a dog, he was the godfather of the dogs 😎
